2 small fires break out at Aliso Canyon facility in Porter Ranch

PORTER RANCH, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Firefighters put out two small fires at the Aliso Canyon gas storage facility in Porter Ranch Thursday.

The first fire broke out around 1:30 a.m. in the 12800 block of Tampa Avenue and the second around 7:30 p.m. Both fires were quickly put out. The cause of the fires was under investigation, but arson was not suspected.

One of the fires was found in a drum near a construction trailer. The second fire erupted in a shipping container.

The Aliso Canyon facility came under fire after a months-long gas leak that displaced hundreds of residents. Many said the fumes caused them to fall ill and suffer from headaches and nosebleeds.
